Teeples Wash

1945

1999

Description:

Plate 117 TEEPLES WASH: 1945 - 1999 The view is down Teeples Wash approximately 400 yards northwest of Teeples Spring. The area was contour trenched, gully-plugged, and reseeded by the Forest Service to stop the erosion and improve range conditions. Aspen (Populus tremuloides) had regenerated shortly before the 1945 photo was taken, but there is no evidence of additional regeneration since. There are no conifers in these aspen stands. The 4x4 road in the 1999 photo accesses a stock pond and random camping in the area.
